It is not currently in your Document Express online mailbox because at this time we have sent Annual Benefit Statements to our college & university members and to Department of Conservation employees only. Due to the COVID-19 state office building closures, including the MOSERS building, we have postponed sending statements to employees of other state agencies. We will resume sending the remainder of Annual Benefit Statements after normal operations resume. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any other questions or concerns.

Is MOSERS a public or private pension plan?
MOSERS is a public defined benefit (DB) pension plan so the benefit you receive through MOSERS is considered a public pension. As long as you reside in Missouri, your retirement benefits are subject to Missouri state income tax and federal tax. You may also be interested in information we have posted about the Missouri state tax Public Pension Exemption.

If you are receiving a retirement check from the state of Missouri are you required to claim it on your state tax income tax return as income?
Yes, you are required to claim your MOSERS benefits on your state taxes if you are a Missouri resident. (If you are not a Missouri resident, contact your state department of revenue or a qualified tax advisor for the answer to this question.) Below is some additional information that MOSERS retirees often need when filing their taxes:
- MOSERS is a public defined benefit (DB) pension plan and the benefit you receive through MOSERS is considered a “public pension”.
- MOSERS withholds state taxes only for Missouri residents.
- As long as you reside in Missouri, your retirement benefits are subject to Missouri state income tax and federal tax. However, you may qualify for the Missouri state tax Public Pension Exemption on your Missouri state tax return.
- We have mailed 1099-R tax forms to all retirees/benefit recipients.

Does my backdrop withdrawals add to my state pension income which adds to my state taxable income that effects my state tax exemption?
Yes, the BackDROP distribution is considered taxable income for the year in which you receive the payment unless you roll it over to a traditional IRA or another eligible employer plan, such as MO Deferred Comp. A popular reason to roll the lump-sum payment into the deferred compensation plan is that it allows employees to defer taxes on the payment until those assets are distributed in retirement. There is a helpful publication on MO Deferred Comp’s website called Thinking About the BackDROP?
Any withdrawal after retirement is taxable in the year of the withdrawal.
We suggest you speak to a tax professional or financial advisor for advice specific to your situation . For more information about state taxes, or the Missouri State Tax Public Pension Exemption, please contact the Missouri Department of Revenue or go to: www.dor.mo.gov/personal/ptc/pension.php.
